There are moments in a man's life where he must accept the inevitable, as graciously as he can, for some forces cannot long be opposed. First among these moments is death; the second, for me, is this very moment. My tenure as the Big Winner, like all things, must end.
I believe future generations will remember my administration fondly. The banning of vanity, ensuring a safer, cleaner Styleforum henceforth; the move to newer, better servers, and the accompanying renovation of our proud electronic lands, long overdue. These things, among many others, have made this a better forum during my incumbency. So it is with sadness that I depart.
It is however, with confidence in our shared future that I vouchsafe the office of Big Winner to Digital Denim, a brilliant and capable sartorialist. I stand willing to help the Digital administration in whatever ways I can, and I promise that in the grand dialogue that is this Styleforum sartoriocracy, I will not be silent; I will continue to post in the What Are You Wearing Now thread. Someone, after all, must make heard the voices of the sauceless. In the meantime, it is with perhaps nostalgia for the past, and hope for the future, but with no regrets in the present, that I hereby step down as the first ever Peasant/Styleforum Big Winner, and pass the mantle on to the worthy, and Asian, Digital Denim.
Thank you, and goodnight.*
God bless Styleforum.
